Through I’ve focused my career on social impact, it’s been mostly through developing scalable technology. I knew when I moved to Seattle in 2015 that I wanted to invest directly into youth, however I could, as well.
YoungLife is similar to Big Brother, Big Sister with an explicit faith component. I was asked to start serving with boys entering 7th grade; I was not excited about it (strongly preferring guys closer to my age in high school or college).
The impact that saying “Yes” to this opportunity, I can only explain it in conversation. These days I’m still attempting to hang out with the now 10th grade guys, challenging them, helping them enjoy life, and pointing them to my ultimate example of a man—Jesus Christ.
